Jeff Sessions dismisses Trump endorsement of GOP primary opponent, slams his 'juvenile insults'

Jeff Sessions, hoping to reclaim his Alabama Senate seat, slammed Donald Trump’s ‘juvenile insults’ after the president took to Twitter to endorse former SEC football coach Tommy Tuberville.

The former Attorney General took to Twitter on Saturday to lambast the president for endorsing a ‘scandal ridden candidate’ though he did not elude to what scandal he was referring to.   

‘I’ve taken the road less travelled,’ he said in the tweet. ‘Not sought fame or fortune. My honor and integrity are far more important than these juvenile insults.

‘Your scandal ridden candidate is too cowardly to debate. As you know, Alabama does not take orders from Washington.’

Prior to serving as the Attorney General, Sessions served on the Senate seat for two decades. 

Sessions was responding to a tweet made just hours earlier by Trump, announcing that the primary Senate race vote in Alabama was taking place on Tuesday. He and the president have not seen eye to eye since Sessions recused himself from the investigation into Russian election meddling.

‘Big Senate Race in Alabama on Tuesday,’ Trump said in the post. ‘Vote for @TTuberville, he is a winner who will never let you down. Jeff Sessions is a disaster who has let us all down. We don’t want him back in Washington!’

Tuberville was quick to retweet Trump’s post, thanking him for the endorsement.       

He said: ‘Thank you @realdonaldtrump! Together we are going to fire @JeffSessions once and for all and send @DougJones packing!’
